ilan Bluestone & Maor Levi – Hold On feat. Alex Clare
“We always got shivers while listening to Alex’s ‘Too Close’. It was a huge record in the U.K. As it turned out Alex was teaching a friend of ours to play the guitar. Another mate went to the same gym as Alex, so managed to get in contact.”
“We originally sent Alex a different instrumental to record on. He sent us the vocal back and we were so inspired by it that we decided to create a completely new record that fit his vocal better. ‘Hold On’ is about embracing every moment in life: “..it’s too short to be filled with tears.”ilan Bluestone & Maor Levi
“Ilan put together some beautiful chords while I worked on the groove. We wanted the message of the lyrics to shine through and we think we achieved that. It’s a powerful track, and today, the song’s message feels more important than ever.”Maor Levi
